A Little Thanks SOTM Blog Hop

The November SOTM celebrates the thanksgiving spirit in our lives. "A Little Thanks" is a set of 16 stamps that includes everything you will need to celebrate a spirit of giving and gratitude. If you have come from Lori's blog you are on the right path. For my project I made a Gratitude Collection using an Olivia Level I Kit to celebrate the generous and thankful acts of all who live with grateful hearts.


A Gratitude Collection made with Olivia Level I Kit

A Gratitude Journal to keep your daily thoughts of thankfulness.



A little post it note to write a quick note of encouragement to someone special.


A Card Box to hold six cards and envelopes for all who need a thank you card.





























Now it's time to hop over to Imagine the Possibilities to catch "A Little Thanks" from Kim.

Heart 2 Heart Goes 4 for 40

And a little bit spooky too. In our house we don't do too much spooky but we do like to treat. These are the treat boxes for Zachary (he likes candy corn) and Ashley (she likes chocolate) for trick or treat night. The pumpkins are made using 3 ovals with the "spooky" face stamped on the center oval.

View all the "spooky" surprises on Heart 2 Heart as often as you can. And if you have a spooky surprise for us post it before Sunday night to be eligible to win the 4 for 40 contest.

Thursday's Three With One

One Stamp Set (Everlasting Life D1440) = Three Bible Verses



I'm still recycling. Again, I used the card base (From the Heart Card Kit) to make these three cards. I covered the paisley section with the music sheet from Mistletoe. My accent colors are Sky, Twilight, and Olive. The corner piece is the corner bookmark made with a 1 1/2" square.

Now for the fun part! Thank you to all who entered the drawing for my Three With One cards from last week. As promised, the random drawing winner is Gayle. So, Gayle please contact me through my website with your mailing address and I will get these cards out to you. Thanks to All!

Thursday's Three With One

One Stamp Set (Snow Flurries D1384)= Three Winter Cards
I'm still in the recycling mode with these card bases (From the Heart Card Kit) I found in my recycle box from years ago. These card bases have some funky paisley print on them. I covered up the paisley part with some stamped images on White Daisy. The colors are Olive, Twilight, and Blush. I used our new colored sparkles in the center of the snowflakes.
Celebrate With Me: With this post I am celebrating a milestone on my blog. I finally reached 100 followers. I really appreciate all of you and your kind and encouraging comments. Now for you my followers I would like to give these cards to one of you. Just leave me a comment and I will put your name in a random drawing to win these cards. The winner will be announced next Thursday on "Thursday's Three with One."

Embossing on Heart 2 Heart

Dry embossing on satin ribbon: Cut your ribbon for the size of the card leaving 3/4" on each end. Cut a piece of typing paper the size of the width of the ribbon and the length of the place it will go on the card. Using Tombow adhesive completely cover the paper with the adhesive. Attach the paper to the back of the ribbon centered leaving 3/4" on each end. Emboss your ribbon with any embossing folder. The paper on the back will keep the embossed pattern firm on the ribbon. Fold the end pieces to the back and secure to your card.

For more embossing techniques visit the Heart 2 Heart blog all this week.
All supplies are CTMH:
Paper: Mistletoe
Card stock: Bamboo, Colonial White
Stamps: All the Best(from Mistletoe WOTG)
Ink: Olive, Bamboo
Embellishments: Mistletoe Assortment, Satin Ribbon
